World Water Day at TAMK on 24th of March!

Environmental Engineering students at TAMK University of Applied Sciences with cooperation of Ekokumppanit Oy organize WATER DAY event at TAMK Teiskontie campus on Tuesday 24th March. The event is held between 12-16.

International World Water Day has been held annually on 22nd March since 1993 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro.

World water day has a different theme every year and this year it is TRANSBOUNDARY WATERS meaning those water resources that cross boarders and link people of different nations together. Nurturing the opportunities for cooperation in transboundary water management can help build mutual respect, understanding and trust among countries and promote peace, security and sustainable economic growth.

Water Day at TAMK will be presented with information stands, lecturers, panel discussion, short movies, small happenings and lots of information on water. There is also special programme for kids (the children groups are asked to enroll by 2nd March to event coordinator).

Busses 8, 16, 18, 19, 20, 28 and 29 come to TAMK from Tampere city centre so as Environmental Engineering students we kindly encourage the guests to use public transportation, bikes or their own feet.

Further information about the detailed schedule follows later in March.

The event is open for everyone.
